Colourful graffitis in Mohamed Mahmoud Street


The walls surrounding Mohamed Mahmoud Street reflected its story in colourful images drawn by the city’s graffiti artists. Overnight, sorrow, defiance and remembrance were expressed in what became iconic representations of the uprising of the Egyptians.

On 19 September Cairo woke up to empty walls; late at night, on orders of the government, all graffiti had been covered by beige paint  in an attempt to obliterate the memories that live vividly in the minds of those that fought for freedom and dignity.

True to the very nature of the temporary art form, artists arrived in droves to use the blank canvas the city had created and filled the walls anew.

The walls of Mohamed Mahmoud will never be silent; its story too important to ever be forgotten.
